Working from c150 data points, So What…? used Average Point Scores (“APS”) to compare the progress of Family Group pupils against the national expectation that pupils would progress at 3 APS points per year.
So What…? concluded that Family Group pupils were ‘catching up’ with the rest of their school by making faster progress than their peers. While the national ‘expectation’ is for pupils to progress at 3 APS points per year, the available data suggests that pupils who participate in Family Groups progress at 3.6 APS per year.
So What...?'s preliminary report is available here.
